Much ado about gun control in the media lately. The second amendment is not about the right to hunt, or target shoot. The second amemdment is meant to protect the citizens from an oppressive and tyrannical government. It is this God given right that the founders of the great nation affirmed in the constitution in the Bill of Rights. If the government wants to disarm its citizens then that government has an evil plan, and knows that the people, will not stand for that plan. Over the last several decades our rights have been slowly and almost without notice, been taken away. Now the federal US govt wants to put in place more unenforcable gun laws. Folks, criminals do not pay attention to the laws of the land. That is why they are criminals. They will ignoe these new laws too. That will leave the law abiding citizens with no protection. The average response time for the police is 28 minutes, the police invetigate crimes, they cannot prevent them. Even Jesus advised His followers to buy a sword.
